Did a ridesharing accident leave you severely injured?
If you were seriously hurt in a collision that involved an Uber or Lyft, and you live in Wesley Chapel, you may be able to recover $1 million in compensation!
The popularity of ridesharing options such as Uber and Lyft is increasing, especially in growing areas like Wesley Chapel and the Greater Tampa Bay region. While Uber and Lyft are applauded for their part in reducing the frequency of drunk driving accidents, studies have shown that they actually tend to increase the overall number of collisions, injuries, and fatalities on the road. Uber and Lyft drivers are not immune from the possibility of an accident or from the legal consequences of negligence, so if you were injured in a ridesharing crash after trusting them with your safety, The Florida Law Group’s Wesley Chapel Uber and Lyft accident injury lawyers can help you prove liability, fight for justice, and win maximum compensation. Call our office today to schedule a free case evaluation.
In a Wesley Chapel Uber or Lyft accident injury case, proving liability can be complex. Because rideshare drivers are technically considered contractors, not employees of the company, Uber and Lyft cannot be liable unless it is discovered that the company itself engaged in negligence, by failing to properly inspect the vehicle, by failing to conduct background checks, etc. Because this is rare, most often it is the driver who will be found negligent. These drivers, under Florida law, have to carry minimum liability insurance coverage of $1 million dollars, which is used to pay out injured accident victims if the accident occurred while they are actively transporting passengers or on their way to pick up passengers. If the extent of your injuries was severe, you are legally entitled to seek some of or much of that amount in a personal injury claim. Our top-notch legal team can help you form a solid claim and will advocate for your legal rights!
Trust experienced Wesley Chapel injury attorneys to recover the damages you deserve
If you are injured in a car crash that involves an Uber or Lyft driver, the cost of your injuries may be expensive. You may have to deal with costs associated with ambulance rides, doctor visits, hospitalizations, medications, imaging texts like X-rays and CT scans, surgeries, therapy and rehabilitation, medical devices, and more. You may have to take time off work and miss out on wages; you may have to cancel vacation or recreation plans that you had already paid for. The sad reality is that some of your injuries may never heal, which means that you will have to pay costs associated with pain management and treatment for your entire life. When a ridesharing accident was not your fault, it is unfair that you have to bear the costs alone.
